Windrush Day will be celebrated all over the country on Monday 22nd of June 2020. It marks a special day as it remembers the first generation of people from the Caribbean, who came over to the UK by invitation to help rebuild Britain after World War Two. It has now been 72 years since MV Empire Windrush arrived at the Port of Tilbury near London marking a seminal moment in Britain’s history as the ship brought over 500 settlers from Jamaica and Trinidad.

To commemorate, recognise and celebrate the contributions of the Windrush generation and their descendants you can join some of the many events planned thoughout the country for Windrush Day 2020 here.
